Regional Wine Week

Posted on

Or… the Crazy Things Bloggers do to win prizes. 

Regional Wine Week is the brainchild of the DrinkLocalWine folks, Dave McIntyre of the Washington Post and Jeff Siegel, the Wine Curmudgeon. Two writers I read regularly, and I highly recommend them. The idea here is to focus, for one week, on spotlighting wine that is from US states other than California, Washington or Oregon… ie. “the Other 47″.

The folks at Drink Local Wine wanted Drink Local advocates to start Regional Wine Week by writing  a 47 word essay. Here’s my attempt.

Started with Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio
Tried the good, the bad
the bad can be really bad,
but the good; that can be amazing.
Not good “for an east coast wine”
Its good, from the East Coast.
Award winners, RP 90+, good QPR from the Other 47.

I don’t think I’m winning any fabulous prizes, but I can’t ever pass up an opportunity to talk about drinking the wine that is grown where you live. Its not just #locavour any more – eating local, but #locapour – drink local. You never know what you might find!

I have posts scheduled every day this week on some of our Other 47 adventures. Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina will be featured of course, as well as Michigan and New York. Sunday’s round up will be my Top 5 Other 47 wines. Stay tuned!

  1. Berkhan`s points of advice – he always suggests the max time for an intermittent fast to be about 16 hours and
    even less than that when she is not dieting pills.
